    hello ,

    The problem is that everytime i want to watch some internet media such as an online video windows media player 10 pops up as it should then an error message pops up in the middle of the player saying :

    "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is located on the Internet, connect to the Internet. If the file is located a removable storage card, insert the storage card."

    this hasnt always been the case this problem started to occur about a week ago.

    i can play videos if i save the video to my computer but this is very awkward and i would realy like to resolve and sort this problem out.

    (i am currently running on windows xp home edition.)

    i hope you can help me thanks.
